gpsdX is an open-source GPS daemon which allows you to share data from a single GPS source with multiple applications on one or even many computers. Not only can it reproduce raw GPS data to an (effectively) unlimited number of clients, but it can also provide fully parsed, on-demand GPS information to any client program. gpsdX is a Mac OS X native, Universal Binary build of GPSd. It comes complete with an installer, and a GUI configuration utility to set it up to launch when you start your system. gpsdX is all you need to get started using GPSd on your Mac!

A formal port of gpsd is a welcome addition (I had previously to always compile it by hand myself and it wasn't easy to have friends using it when necessary). I've test it with a Hicom BT GPS receiver and it works flawlessly.

Something I think would be a good addition is a simple program that is able to capture gpsd's output and store it in an GPS interchange format for later processing by other applications. I'm not one for mapping applications (and, anyway, it's illegal in Spain to have a working laptop running in the front seats) but I do like to store the routes and wouldn't mind being able to store waypoints directly in the computer. Since I've moved from the Garmin I had to this BT receiver I have lost the ability to do it directly in the receiver and now need the laptop to do it. If I could set-up a way to store all the incoming data in a convertable format I could have the laptop running in the floor of the backseats and store waypoints whenever I decided to (by stopping, doing it and then continuing, I tend to mark as waypoints places I stop at).

There might be already a tool that does this, but I can't find it.
